Simple Pendulum
A simple pendulum is made from a 0.883 m long string and a small ball attached to it's free end. The ball is pulled to the side through a small angle and then released from rest. After the ball is released how much time elapses before it attains it's greatest speed?

The time period for a simple pendulum of length L, for small oscillation is given by

As the greatest speed is ...
